Welcome to Vague Recollections, a new bookish meme hosted by Kait Plus Books (hey, that’s me!) where every week readers band together to describe books in the most vague way possible! For fun!
- Describe the book on Kait’s post as vaguely as possible in the comments section
- Go to your own blog and make a post about a different book
- Link your post in the Mister Linky on Kait Plus Books
- People will then describe that book as vaguely as possible in your comments section
- Visit and comment on other blogs so that everyone gets some post love!
Anyone who has visited my blog during Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon the past few years has probably seen me hosting my mini-challenge, Vague Recollections. I love doing it so much that I thought it would be fun to make it into a weekly meme! But! The way it works is a little different.
For this meme each reader will choose a book, and then in the comments section of their post other readers will try to describe the book in the most vague terms possible. For example, my book today is Furyborn by Claire Legrand, so I might describe it as:
That really long book with magic and doors and fire? And I think there’s a sword on the cover? Or maybe a knife?
As horrible as that description is, it does… technically, describe Furyborn. And the best part about this is that you don’t actually have to have read the books to participate! All you have to read is the summary, and make a vague summary based on that!
So your mission today, should you accept it, is to describe Furyborn as vaguely as you can in my comments, and then pick a book to make your own post with so people can describe that book as vaguely as possible in your comments!
For today’s post, you should try to describe

Furyborn follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world...or doom it.
When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed...unless the trials kill her first.
One thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora. A bounty hunter for the Undying Empire, Eliana believes herself untouchable--until her mother vanishes. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain and discovers that the evil at the empire's heart is more terrible than she ever imagined.
As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world--and of each other.
